 Skruffy pointed out that we want to fix #9093 along the same timeframe as
 we deploy virtual circuits, otherwise it may be possible to remotely
 overload relays to probe for the fact that they are in use by a particular
 client (by observing the repeated disconnect/reconnect patterns of the
 target during the circuit-pruning OOM step).

 At least I think that's what he was talking about.
